Monthly Letter | Seven Months

Seven months old!

When you were a newborn, we were sure it was impossible to love anything more than we loved you at that moment. Our friends told us, “Just you wait, it gets better and better.” I couldn’t understand how this was possible, but now I do. Each day with you brings something new, each milestone and stage brings new wonder and amazement.

Pappa, Svigerfar og Farfar

En stor helt i mitt liv fylte år idag (06.12). Dette portettet er et av de bedre jeg har tatt. Ikke at det er det beste fototekninsk, men pga den gleden av å høre sin far fortsatt snakke om DET bildet av seg. Dette bildet ble tatt i forbindelse min fotofaglige svenneprøve i 2001. Klart man består med et slikt sjarmerende portrett!

Fall projects

Alpaca neck warmer

This one felt good to finish because I love it and use it all the time. It feels amazing to make something and then actually use it and be satisfied that it was as good or better than something I otherwise would have purchased.READ MORE

Idle Hands

Babies = handicrafts.

I`ve dabbled in knitting in my past, but never came past the basic straight scarf.  When Marielle came along my fingers suddenly itched to create something. I yearned to step confidently into the yarn store at the mall and join the other ladies in the scrutinizing, squeezing and caressing of the skeins of yarn. I suppose it`s instinctual, a part of the nurturing. Woman makes baby, baby needs blanket, mom makes blanket, or hat, scarf, booties etc.

Monthly Letter | Four Months

Dear Marielle,

This month you have developed sooo much. You`re personality has really exploded out of the small helpless baby we brought home in June. You are a true wild child. You laugh, screech, giggle, cry, talk and use your voice in a amazing ways. You like to be part of the action, talking constantly through dinner parties, gatherings, and to complete strangers.

Monthly Letter | Three Months

Dear Marielle,

You are three months old today! This past month has brought about some big changes in you. Your personality is becoming stronger with each day and we feel like we’re starting to speak your language. Last month was all about the smile and this month has been all about the laugh. You’ve started to giggle at all the silly things we do with you. Mommy found out that you like to be surprised with sudden boos, woos, and a-choos. Pappa discovered that you were ticklish in your arm pits and you light up with the biggest smile when he comes home from work.READ MORE

Monthly Letter | Two Months

Dear Marielle,

You are two months old today! It is hard to believe that you’ve only been with us for two months as we can hardly remember life without you. Your little noises have become a perminant part of our daily soundtrack and you’ve started talking! Wooos and coos, and gurgles,and you’re learning to do funny things with your lips to make different noises.
We could sit and listen to you for hours and boy do we laugh.
